If you actually made this comment attributed to you below, I cannot support you as a presidential candidate. The President must be a "natural born "citizen-- no ifs, ands, or buts. It's not good enough for you to "think" that Obama was born in the USA-- if he was born in Kenya, Obama could never be "natural born"- he would be born a . Rather than surrender his birth certificate for public scrutiny, Obama let a decorated Army medical officer, LTC , go to jail at -- who had defied orders since his chains of command and his Congressional delegation could not assure him his Commander-in-Chief was legally serving. In condemning this officer to prison, the Army over-turned the -- which require soldiers, when in doubt, to question the legality of their orders. He was denied due process- evidence to defend himself and expert witnesses to testify in his behest. Were you aware of this gross miscarriage of justice?
After more than 2 years of Obama concealing ALL of his records- hiding behind his lawyers and the Privacy Act, we can assume perhaps he's NOT eligible and American voters may have been subjected to the greatest political fraud ever perpetrated in US history. We elect leaders to handle big problems- to do what is right-- but above all, to uphold the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law. This statement below indicates one of two things-- either you are ignorant-- and don't realize that Obama has never offered a shred of evidence-- not one official document-- to prove his birth in Hawaii-- or you are part of the conspiracy to keep a lid on this raging controversy and to give Obama free rein to run for re-election in 2012 without challenging his legal credentials (which thanks to Donald Trump's courage, are now being raised in the mainstream media). If you are ignorant of the facts, why don't you ask Obama to release his long form birth certificate, so we might all finally know the truth? If you are in the second category, your chances of winning the Republican nomination or the White House are greatly diminished by any hint of complicity with Obama's scandalous records cover-up. Didn't Obama promise transparency?-- why don't you ask him to deliver on that pledge?
